MO: Semi-successful Disarm Victim and Robber both Wounded
During the struggle, the gun went off several times, and both men were hit.
The gunman, 27, ran off, heading west on Lucas Avenue. Officers chased after him and caught him about a block away on Washington, with the help of a police dog. The dog also bit the man, said Leah Freeman, a spokeswoman for the St. Louis Police Department.
He was bleeding from a gunshot wound to his bicep.
The man he tried to rob, 23, suffered a gunshot wound to his hand.
